I had not previously had any accounting experience and Mark was very patient in explaining formats and systems and helping with the appropriate returns. Over time Mark has become more of a friend advising on complex tax and VAT queries in a prompt and detailed manner; and if he is unsure then he will contact other advisers to ensure he is giving us the correct information. We have been very grateful for the expert advice he has given over the years. I appreciate that he is running our payroll and completing the end of year accounts. I have confidence in the way in which this is carried out – which is very reassuring when running a business.
